WWE NXT International Expansion Continues With New Trademark Filings
WWE NXT’s international expansion is progressing after the recent announcement of NXT Europe.
WWE filed for the “NXT Europe” and “NXT Global” trademarks on September 16, according to USPTO (United States Patent & Trademark Office) filings.
The following usage description was included in the repositories:
“Entertainment services, namely, broadcast on professional wrestling; entertainment services, namely, production and presentation of professional wrestling events presented live and through broadcast media, including television and distributed through various platforms over multiple forms of transmission media; providing wrestling news and information via audiovisual media, including television and distributed via various platforms on multiple forms of transmission media; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via broadcast media, including television and distributed via various platforms over multiple forms of transmission media; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information »
WWE has been discussing NXT international brands for a few years now. The NXT UK brand was concluded last summer after WWE announced the launch of NXT Europe in 2023.
“Following the success of our live events and talent identification efforts across Europe, we believe now is the perfect time to expand NXT beyond the UK,” said Vice-President. WWE Senior President of Talent Development Shawn Michaels in the original press release issued several weeks back.
There’s no confirmation on exactly when NXT Europe will launch in 2023, or what they have planned for other territories, but NXT Global may indicate where they’re headed in the future.
